I assume you're using NetstringReceiver? You want to implement the
Producer interface: pauseProducing/resumeProducing/stopProducing,
similar to how LineReceiver implements it. (That is, submit a patch to
NetstringReceiver implementing it). LineReceiver's pauseProducing does
exactly what you want: 1) stops the socket from being read more and 2)
doesn't call lineReceived any more even if there are more lines already
